I really liked this book because of how good the illustrations were. The illustrations made the book stand out. This book is also a series so if you like this book you should check out all the other books. The books all relate in some way, shape or form and they are all amazing. As I read the book I wanted to read more. I kept wondering what will happen next. This series brought reading to life for me. This is why I really enjoyed this book and in my opinion you should read this series.
I would totally recommend this book. I would recommend this book to all my friends because it has all the fun action that my friends like. You might even like it too. This might interest you because it has apocalypse settings and fun thrills. After you reading the series, there is a Netflix show for this book so you should check that out too. That is why I would recommend this book to all my friends and you.
